The Magnolia Scholars program supports students who are the first in their families to attend college. All of these first generation students have strong academic preparation and tremendous motivation to succeed. The goal of the program is to insure the academic success and personal fulfillment of each student to graduation. The Director’s goal is that each Scholar will have access to international studies programs and graduate/professional school enrollment on par with the average Wake Forest student. Magnolia Scholars have access to all cultural programming and research opportunities that are presented to merit scholarship recipients.
